Planning & Development
Plan the Bruce
Bruce County is seeking input on a path for the future health of our communities that will inform the new Official Plan. Let's Plan the Bruce. Together.
Land Use Planning
The Planning team works with municipalities to be “development ready.” If you can’t find a spot that’s ready for your development, we can help guide you to the best place for your development, and through the planning approval process if changes are needed to accommodate your proposal. Don’t feel you have to navigate the process on your own. We know how it works and we are here to navigate it with you.
Economic Development team members are the guides in partnership with our Land Use Planning colleagues to an “even-better Bruce County.”
From rugged escarpment to sandy beaches and rolling countryside, Bruce County’s natural landscape is as unique and varied as the people who call it home. Bruce County is where the explorers, the dreamers, the get-out-and-doers come to connect with what matters in life, find opportunities to grow, and be part of a community that cares about one another.
Bruce County Economic Development focuses on business development, workforce development and community development. In a nutshell, we support entrepreneurs and community growth. The Business to Bruce program facilitates business foundations; marketing and promotion of business opportunities; and the necessary supports, outreach and education for business success. We promote and market Bruce County's best and most authentic experiences through Explore the Bruce. And through the Spruce the Bruce community development program, Bruce County helps build vibrant and welcoming communities. We work with partners at all levels to ensure sustainable growth, economic development, infrastructure and resource support.
Bruce County's major sectors are agriculture, tourism and energy. Developing opportunity and capacity for innovation around these sectors is a key priority.
The future looks bright in Bruce.
